“The right of self-defense is the first law of nature; in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest possible limits. … and [when] the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.” —St. George Tucker
As Fox News’ Todd Starnes reported, 23-year-old Devin McLean an employee of AutoZone stopped an armed robbery by retrieving a Glock 40 from his truck while working at the York County, Virginia store.
As Starnes further reported, York County Sheriff’s Dept. believe as many as 30 robberies across the region can be attributed to this bandit.
Sheriff J.D. Diggs told Fox News “He did a very brave thing,” the sheriff said. “He put himself in jeopardy in an attempt to make sure his friend was safe. He did a very brave thing.”
Devin McLean is a military veteran…He is a soon-to-be father…and he did the right and moral thing intervening in this robbery so Autozone fires McLean for violating their gun policy.
And this author will NEVER enter another Autozone store. They can have their policies, I will take my business elsewhere.
